We would like to wish all our friends a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year

5 December 2011

We haven't had alot to report of late!

As Summer continues to heat up (well on some days) we have cut our showing down
This weekend will be our last show until some time in late January

This week we head to Wellington, New Zealand to choose our puppies from Oxy & Lava's litter and we expect them to arrive in the next couple of weeks.

We then have Tyler arriving from Canada in about 10 days.

Cole will be leaving for England on 4 January 2012, we will miss him he is a great puppy,
he finished his time in the baby class winning Best Baby Puppy in Group on the weekend under Mr K Nicholls.

We have a lovely litter expected in January.  We are yet to confirm this but are looking forward to it.

Val and I saw Cesar Millan recently and had such a great night out...definately a must do if you get the opportunity.

and so....another year winds down...

Im sure there is more to report, but can't think just now!

We would like to wish all our friends a very Happy New Year.

2010 ended with some wonderful achievements by some great people with great dogs.

We are proud to have bred 2 Weimaraner Australian Champions for 2010,
CH Greydove Blue Moon, owned by Carolyn Gale, exhibited in Perth WA
sire: MBISS Aust/NZ Ch Ghostwind Smokin Gun dam: Aust Ch Greydove Ekahi Surfer Girl Imp USA

CH Greydove Brandy Coral, owned by Greg & Barry Stevenson, exhibited in Sydney NSW
sire: MBISS Aust/NZ Ch Ghostwind Smokin Gun dam: Greydove Kindred Spirit

We are proud to have bred 2 Lagotto Australian Champions for 2010

sire: MBIS Aust Ch Budoar Walsh Imp Fin dam: Aust Ch Greydove Emilia

CH Greydove Pasqua Faith, owned by Robynne Flynn & Greydove Kennels, exhibited in Qld
sire: MBIS Aust Ch Budoar Walsh Imp Fin dam: Aust Ch Greydove Emilia

A highlight of the year was the arrival of our beautiful Margeaux, Am Ch Rissana Hillwood's Perfect Harmony at Greydove Imp USA.
We have now decided on the sire for Margeaux's first litter and look forward to that litter mid year 2011.

Our youngster "Charlotte" Ghostwind Know It All had a wonderful show year finishing as NSW # 1 Weimaraner Rising Star, quite an accomplishment given the amount of puppies who compete in this competition in Sydney and surrounds. 
Charlotte probably would have finished her championship by now had we not been showing both our girls!!! As would have Margeaux !!!

In the performance circles the multi-talented "Cooper" Aust Ch Greydove Lord Oth Rings (with too many titles to list) gained the following titles this year
Utility Dog Obedience - UD, Dances with Dogs Freestyle - Novice (DWDF.N), Heelwork to Music - Starters - (HTM.S), Heelwork to Music - Novice. - (HTM.N)
Cooper was also awarded the Weimaraner Club of NSW Versatile Dog of the Year for the 4th time, quite an accomplishment!

We are now looking forward to our first Lagotto litter for nearly 2 years!
Greydove Jasmine sire: CH Budoar Nutti Imp Fin dam: Kan Trace Greydove Gabriella Imp Croatia
